Same Thing = King Bee
Someone please convince me this "Same Thing" instramental isn't really "King Bee." It's one of my favorite tunes. I listen to it all the time. The first thing that came to me when I heard it was - "King Bee." What am I missing? I mean the opening is so identifiable.
Just happened to spin the "Historic" Avalon show of September 16th this morning. Yep, it's "King Bee."

Sound track for songs for 1960's anti war Berkeley documentary "Sons and Daughters"
The two songs were for the opening and closing credits for a film called "Sons and Daughters" which was a documentary about the anti war movement in Berkeley, California in 1965 and 1966. The film was produced and directed by Jerry Stoll a San Francisco Bay Area photographer.
A film distribution company, called American Documentary Films, was formed to distribute the film as well as other left political documentaries. The company lasted through 1972. It had two offices in New York City and San Francisco.
The company attempted to sponsor a Cuban a Film Festival in New York in 1971 which was blocked by the U. S. Justice Department for violating the trade embargo of Cuba.
The company also attempted to produce a film about Daniel Ellsberg and his release of the Pentagon Papers.

It's amazing to have this but it's running 8% too fast. I slowed the songs down 8% with Audacity and found they compared very well to the tempo and more importantly to the keys of songs played at the 1966-11-19 show. (1966-12-01 is also too fast and 1966-12-04 may be another version of 1966-12-01).
"The Same Thing" may be at the right speed. "Fire in the City" (with Jon Hendricks) may be 6% fast.

Great if you love karaoke Dead.
I dig it deeply so far. Cool. I'm fixated on listening to every show and session chronologically now, since I think the old shtuff's the absolute best of most of it. . . which is all great.

Despite the "12-5-66" date, most of these are outtakes from the first album, recorded in January '67. Mostly instrumentals, but still interesting for folks who like to hear the Dead laying tracks down...
(The Jon Hendricks tracks were recorded in March '67.)
The track labeled "Same Thing", by the way, is actually King Bee.

The Jon Hendricks?
Those last two tracks were exceptional, the whole recording is something else. What a potent blues band the early Dead was! So, what's the story with the vocalist / Warlocks connection?
Thank you for this excellent archive!!
